Little Sahara

I've been somewhat absent from the Blogosphere this last week due to the filming of the music video for Whole Wide World. Folks, I'm really excited about this video. I hope it inspires you to try something new. I hope it makes you feel empowered to do the extraordinary things that you were born to do.
Last Thursday we spent the whole day at Little Sahara filming dirt biking scenes.
It was SO. MUCH. FUN.

Is this me? Or a stunt double? You'll never know . . . Ok, you might when you see the enormous jumps in the video.

Camera operator Derek (left) and director, Julian Acosta(right) survey the land for a good spot.

This picture sort of cracks me up.
Julian gets a ride to survey the land more extensively.

Producer, Jared Harris, stands by and looks artsy fartsy. But seriously, Jared's job is to make everything more fun.

Now, it's time for me to warm up.

Riding in the sand feels really awesome.

And crashing in it really isn't that bad.

Now I suit up.

The best part of the day was when an Apache helicopter paid us a visit and did all kinds of rad tricks. Then, it actually landed and the pilot hopped out and chatted with us for a while. I had to pinch myself.

It's a good thing the camera was rolling.

Stay tuned for scenes in southern Utah where we create clouds of glittery, colored smoke that explode in my face.
